White House Denies Assigning NASA Administrator to Perform Muslim Outreach

Somebody call the fire marshall, because the underside of Barack Obama’s bus was already dangerously overcrowded, and yet another body has been thrown under:

The White House is contradicting the NASA administrator’s claim that President Barack Obama assigned him to reach out to Muslims on science matters.

NASA Administrator Charles Bolden recently told Al-Jazeera network that one of the charges Obama gave him was “to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science and engineering.”
[...]
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday that such activities are not among Bolden’s assigned tasks. He said administration officials have spoken with NASA about the matter.

If that’s the case, why didn’t the Obama administration stuff a turban in Bolden’s mouth when he started talking about Obama tasking him with a Muslim outreach way back in February?

Does this sound like a guy who made it all up on his own — twice?

Maybe Obama’s people recognized that announcing a “Muslim outreach” just after telling some NASA employees and others that they’d be losing their jobs due to “new directions” in Obama’s vision for the space program was bad PR, so they decided to roll over on Bolden. I doubt that’s the reason though — Team Obama seems to have a pretty high tolerance for ignoring the will, opinion and outrage of the people.
